Social Work Field Studies in Mumbai

Experience one of the great megalopolises of the world, Mumbai.

With Mumbai as the foreground, this course brings you into the center of a complex urban environment—the epicenter of Bollywood and the financial capital of India—where traditions, old and new, intersect with history, culture and innovation.

Through fieldwork at NGOs, excursions, and classroom-based learning, students will observe and gain exposure to a range of social concerns and challenges that affect social work practice.
